The Silence SFX makeup tutorial (Dr. Who)

By  | 

Silence shall fall when the question is asked

In this episode we take on a character that you helped us choose. Namely The Silence. As one of the creepier monsters in the popular television series Dr. Who, The Silence turns out to be a religious society rather than just a species. Our approach to the look is a classic latex paste and flour solution for the sculpting of the face. For the hands however it’s a different story as we decided to use disposable gloves as a base, making it possible to actually re-use the hands whenever you need to dress up as the Silence.

On top of e the gloves we build layers of aluminium foil and tissue paper, along with liquid latex. When it has set and dried we simply paint and shade the hands and they are good to go.

As for the head we are using a bald cap along with the diy monster prosthetic and match up the colours when the mask is in place. Make sure you cut holsed for breathing before you apply the mask.

    I always thought it'd be funny if someone walked in on a bunch 9f silence hanging from the ceiling and then someone asks them how they're doing and then they all fall. Because silence will fall when the question is asked. No.... not funny. Nevermind.

    its a great way to make a mask , i learned it from u guys , if i can say 2 little tips , i do the mix very well so it comes softer, so keep mixing and blend it ! , then after shaping it and drys out i do 2 more layers of liquid latex - with that it turns out more like a skin ! (unless u going for harder skin) keep on guys

    Hey Macs, When you livestream depands on your audience. If you have most views from the USA, 21.00 on a Thursday is shit because it's would be 12:00 over there so most people will be at work or school. Also share the link to the stream on social media's like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook to give people a headsup. Take a better look at your analitics of the Channel (: Quality of voice overs is good, same background music makes it feel safe and femiliar. Editing and directing are also good. Spread your channel more by commenting on video's of other makeup artist on youtube who do the same like Glam&Gore etc (because of your sub ammount you comment will end up on top and will most likely be pinned down by the owner of the video), do give away's, start doing Q&A's (people like to emotional connect, it builds respect which makes people more likely to want to learn from you) and start to learn about psychlogy (:

    Hi Elli & Macs! I have a question about the latex paste. Whenever I try to make prosthetics out of latex paste, it always ends up turning a weird green color with tiny black grainy spots everywhere. I'm using normal liquid latex and normal baking flour, but every time I try, it always ends up that same weird color and texture. I've used both all purpose flour and also self-rising flour to see if there would be a difference, but both ways had the same result. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong :(
